During Poverty Awareness Month, remember those in need but take action too. Poverty doesn’t only disrupt lives but creates inter-generational issues that perpetuate through families, which makes the work of Partnership With Native Americans incredibly important.
Chef Lois Ellen Frank of Red Mesa Cuisine reminds us that traditional Native American foods are nutritious and delicious, and that a return to an ancestral, plant-based diet is a way to reclaim health and wellness in Native communities. She shares a recipe for Three Sisters Stew.

His Veteran’s benefits exhausted, this Native American veteran turned to the American Indian Education Fund for help funding graduate school.

PWNA and its SWRA program provide home repair and home improvement for Native American Elders and their families.
The support of the Walmart Foundation ensures that PWNA will continue to have an impact in remote Native American communities around the country.
